Julie Warner –
A very Happy New Year to you all! 

Today’s sketch challenge (SC469) is an interesting one, and I took a couple of liberties with it in order to make my elements work. I laid it down horizontally and my corner element and little circles are all tied together. I hope the sketch is still recognizable 🙂

The snowflake wreath was silver embossed and die cut w/ a large circle. I added a turquoise layer die cut w/ an exquisite circle die behind it then the added the turquoise forstyville border across the bottom. The greeting is only a portion of a larger Christmas greeting. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.

For my first card, I stamped and die cut 3 apothecary bottles, 2 apothecary labels out of lilac and 1 label out of lavender. I stamped the lavender image on the lavender label and I masked and stamped the hyacinth on one lilac label and the morning glory on the other. I added a little color with Copics to the labels and to the bottles. Only the first part of the greeting was stamped inside a die cut tag and attached with variegated floss. The word Lavender and a lavender sprig were stamped across the bottom of the dk blue violet strip. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25 and these are the Copics I used.

For my second card, I stamped the apothecary bottle and the candy hearts filler inside. After coloring with Copics, I die cut with the matching die and added some stickles to the hearts. The greeting was also stamped and die cut. The white background was embossed and the pink frame was made with the ODBD Elegant Oval dies. I added some designer paper, ribbon and sequins to finish my 4.25 x 5.50 card and these are the Copics I used.

Welcome to a new challenge for  Serendipity Stamps!  We’re switching things up a bit in 2014…The challenges will now be MONTHLY so you have longer to play. The design team will still provide inspiration twice a month (every other Wednesday), but you will have the whole month to play along! The Serendipity Challenge this month is Buttons.  You can find all the details on how to play along with us at the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog. With each challenge we always have a gift certificate up for grabs to a random player.

Weekly-FavoriteI chose this wonderful Teddy Friends image to use. It makes a great baby card but I think it also makes a great Get Well card…the big Teddy looks likes he’s comforting the little Teddy. Since the DT’s subcategory was Get Well (along with the monthly Buttons category), I used the Get Well Soon greeting with it. For the main Button Challenge, I used several real buttons and also made a background with the sweet Button Corner image.

After coloring with Copics, I trimmed the image and edged it with black. The button corner was stamped repeatedly on the larger white panel, colored with Copics and also edged with black. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.
